John, and all,Wild Blueberries in small quantities are helpful in managing UTIs but they do have some carbs.
But the record does seem to be stuck - test - test and test again to see how your body views them.
Cranberries are supposed to be good. Also cranberry juice.John, and all,
Do you know natural herbs/berries that can handle UTI, I am using garlic but it keeps coming back after few days and I don't want to increase the intake of it, I also want to avoid antibiotics if possible, any help is appreciated.
Then I have no drug escape here, welcome antibiotics againGarlic is the first line of attack used by my BH whenever she suspects that I've succumbed to a UTI. One clove with every meal over several days. The other minor change she makes is that dessert (lunch time only) is a small handful of blueberries.
It does seem to work for me but sometimes (like four years ago), the only solution is antibiotics with the proviso that you must complete the course of treatment and not stop just because the symptoms seem to have disappeared. (Sorry to state the obvious)
Love strawberries I'm able to eat them with minimal impact to BS.I can eat blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries in that order from best to worst results. But I can only eat about 1-1.5 oz of any single one of them in one serving. Last summer I found I could tolerate Pink Lady apples and watermelon, both in the 1-2oz serving size and not every single day. Sometimes it will take me 4 days to finish one apple! And I usually end up throwing out about 1/2 the watermelon, even if I buy one of those tiny ones. Living alone does have a few disadvantages..... And I retest all of the above periodically, to make sure they are still safe.
me for one and like a lot of fruit there does seem to be several varieties with differing degrees of sweetness and carbs. Know that meter you've got? Another time to use itReading Wikipedia it looks like Cranberries are pretty high in carbs and I'm assuming that is in unsweetened form. And besides, who can eat them unsweetened
